Default Plant Science positions at the University of Nebraska





The Plant Science Community at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is
expanding. We are currently seeking applicants for two tenure-track
positions (Plant Comparative Genomics and Plant Epigenetics) and
postdoctoral research associates. We would appreciate if you could bring
this to the attention of suitable candidates.

A full-page ad describing these positions appeared in the October 19th
issue of Science (volume 318, issue 5849). Please refer to the print
journal or contact me and I will forward a pdf version of the
advertisement.

Thanks,
Julie

Plant Science Innovation at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln

The Plant Science Community at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is a
vibrant, rapidly growing group of scientists focused in research areas that
include chromatin biology, abiotic and biotic stress responses, organelle
biology, metabolic biochemistry, and genetic engineering. We wish to
announce several important upcoming opportunities in plant science at UNL:

Plant Comparative Genomics Position

A joint, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position is
currently available in the Plant Science Initiative ([Only registered users see links. ])
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The position is 80% research/20%
teaching with an academic home in the Department of Agronomy and
Horticulture. The successful candidate is expected to maintain a vigorous,
externally funded research program focused on comparative genomics of
plants. Strong preference will be given to research programs that focuson
crop genome evolution, computational biology, large scale cross-genome
comparison or DNA marker-based analysis, or related areas. Teaching
responsibilities include teaching one graduate or undergraduate level
course annually in Plant Systematics, and mentoring students. A Ph.D. and
post-doctoral experience in plant genetics, plant biology or systematics,
computational biology or related field is required. Salary is commensurate
with qualifications and experience. Review of applications will begin
November 30, 2007, and continue until the position is filled or the search
is closed. Applicants should go to [Only registered users see links. ] (requisition
#070778) and complete the Faculty/Administrative Information form and then
send a complete application file consisting of a statement of research
interests, a current CV and arrange for three letters of recommendationto:
Search Committee Chair, PSI Comparative Genomics Position, N300 Beadle
Center for Genetics Research, University of Nebraska-Lincoln 68588-0660
(USA)

Plant Epigenetics Position

A joint, tenure-track Assistant or Associate Professor position is
currently available in the Plant Science Initiative ([Only registered users see links. ])
at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The position is 80% research/20%
teaching with an academic home in the School of Biological Sciences. The
successful candidate is expected to maintain a vigorous, externally funded
research program focused on epigenetic biology of plants. Strong preference
will be given to research programs that focus on RNA interference,
non-coding RNAs, chromatin structure and function, genome-wide analysesof
histone or DNA modifications, gene silencing, paramutation or genomic
imprinting. Teaching responsibilities include teaching one graduate or
undergraduate level course annually in a relevant area, and mentoring
students. A Ph.D. and post-doctoral experience in genetics, molecular
biology, systems biology or a related field is required. Salary is
commensurate with qualifications and experience. Review of applications
will begin November 30, 2007, and continue until the position is filledor
the search is closed. Applicants should go to [Only registered users see links. ]
(requisition #070789) and complete the Faculty/Administrative Information
form and then send a complete application file consisting of a statement of
research interests, a current CV and arrange for three letters of
recommendation to: Search Committee Chair, PSI Epigenetics Position, N300
Beadle Center for Genetics Research, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
68588-0660 (USA). Graduate Traineeships in Plant Systems Biology and
Molecular Plant Breeding. See: [Only registered users see links. ]

Postdoctoral Positions

The Plant Science Initiative ([Only registered users see links. ]) invites applications
for two postdoctoral research associate positions. The successful
candidates will contribute to studying the role of transcription factors
and histone modifications in the responses of Arabidopsis and corn to
water. We are particularly interested in characterizing chromatin
modifications associated with stress-responsive genes as well as the target
network of a subset of inducible transcription factors. Genome-wide
approaches, such as chromatin immunoprecipitation and high throughput
sequencing, will be used to analyze transcription factor binding and
histone modifications during water stress. The research environment
includes state-of-the-art facilities in the George W. Beadle Center for
Genetics and Biomaterials Research and opportunities in genomics,
proteomics, and bioinformatics analyses. A Ph.D. degree in Plant Biology,
Biological Sciences, Genetics, or a related field is required. Experience
in molecular genetics, protein biochemistry, and/or antibody productionis
highly desirable. Review of applications will begin November 23, 2007 and
continue until suitable candidates are found. Interested candidates should
complete the Faculty/Administrative application form at
[Only registered users see links. ] (requisition #060042) and then send a cover
letter, current CV and the names and contact information of three
references to Dr. Heriberto Cerutti ([Only registered users see links. ]) or Dr. Michael
Fromm ([Only registered users see links. ]) E205/E211 Beadle Center, P.O. Box 880666,
University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Lincoln, NE 68588 USA
